Description - Mr Palomar by Italo Calvino

Mr Palomar is a delightful eccentric whose chief activity is looking at things. He is seeking knowledge; 'it is only after you have come to know the surface of things that you can venture to seek what is underneath'. Whether contemplating a fine cheese, a hungry gecko, a woman sunbathing topless or a flight of migrant starlings, Mr Palomar's observations render the world afresh.

Buy Mr Palomar by Italo Calvino from Australia's Online Independent Bookstore, Boomerang Books.
